Somewhere on this site there is a description of how to import messages from a backup of Outlook Express after a wipe and reinstall? Can anyone point me to it please? Have imported the wab file for addresses but cant remember which is the message file and where it would be stored???

To find your new (empty) message folders, do a search for *.dbx (inbox.dbx and sent items.dbx being the main ones). Make a note of where they are. If you haven't loaded OE since reloading windows, load it up offline and empty boxes will be created.

If you did a backup of the messages files in the form of a copy, simply copy/paste (or drag/drop) your backup "in" and "sent" dbxs to the new location.
